Works for any camera with a built-in flash
“This external flash certainly does work to augment the flash capabilites of the DSCW1. In my tests, it appears to be effective outdoors at night at distances of up to about 50-60 feet. The HVLFSL1B is NOT controlled directly by the camera – there are no electrical connections whatsoever. Instead, there is a light sensor on the HVLFSL1B which senses the light of the DSCW1’s built in flash and this triggers the HVLFSL1B. And so, in fact, this External Slave Flash will work for practically any camera, whether they have a hotshoe or not, as long as they have a built-in flash (the DSCW1 does not have a hotshoe – the mounting bracket of the HVLFSL1B is attached to the tripod screwhole of the DSCW1).” – By DarthRad

Works fine
“Purchased this flash to use with my DSC-W1 to fill in where the built-in flash was partially blocked by the telephoto lens. After playing with it for a few days it does a fine job. No problems with shadowing, flashes at all “normal” angles and positions from the built-in flash, and seems built well enough to hold up over time.” – By S. Weed
